New for 2012
There are no significant changes for 2012.

Exterior
Like earlier S4 models, the styling differs from the A4's, but it isn't overdone. The casual observer wouldn't know it's the performance variant. It has different bumpers and a different grille, a trunk lid with an integrated spoiler, LED taillights and 18-inch wheels with performance tires. The brake calipers carry the S4 logo. Metallic "aluminum-optic" accents appear as front and rear diffuser blades, and the S4 has four tailpipes. Exterior features include:

  • 18-inch wheels on Premium Plus model
  • 19-inch wheels on Prestige model
  • Xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights with LED daytime running lights
  • Auto-dimming, heated side mirrors

Interior
The S4 is distinguished by contoured sport seats and numerous elements not found in the A4, such as a black headliner, brushed aluminum trim and a choice of carbon fiber, wood or stainless steel. S4 badges adorn the steering wheel, doorsills, gauge cluster and remote transmitter. Interior features include:

  • Keyless entry and engine start
  • Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity
  • Standard leather and Alcantara upholstery
  • Optional Silk Nappa leather upholstery
  • Optional navigation system and backup camera
  • Optional Bang & Olufsen premium stereo
  • Standard iPod integration

Under the Hood
The S4's engine is a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 that produces 333 horsepower and 325 pounds-feet of torque. Transmission options are a six-speed manual and seven-speed automated manual, the latter equipped with dual clutches for fast gear changes. It has an automatic mode and can also be shifted manually using paddles on the steering wheel. Mechanical features include:

  • Supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 with 333 hp
  • Six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic transmission
  • Standard Quattro all-wheel drive with a 40/60 percent front/rear torque distribution
  • Optional QuattroSport mechanical rear differential
  • Optional Audi drive select system

Safety
Along with the required front airbags come side curtain airbags that protect front and rear occupants. The front seats have torso airbags, and they can be added to the rear seats as an option. Other safety features include:
